  3. 3. "Government publications, commonly called public documents, are among the oldest records, and if measured by their influence on civilization, are probably the most important of all written records. They are the sources of political, economic, and social history of peoples of all times; they contain the authentic accounts of the world's great explorations, discoveries, and inventions in every field of human endeavor; they reveal and explain the phenomenal scientific and technological developments of modern times; they open up great treasuries wherein man has attempted to give expression to his artistic impulses. They contain the history of civilization itself in all its aspects." --Anne Morris Boyd, United States Government Publications, 1949
